ENSEMBLE® 6000 Series SFM6101 Switch Fabric Module OpenVPX Serial RapidIO and Ethernet

Product Description

The Ensemble™ 6000 Series OpenVPX SFM6101 Next Generation Switch Fabric Module from Mercury Computer Systems is a VITA 46/48 switch board that provides full inter-board Gen2 serial RapidIO and Gigabit Ethernet connections in an OpenVPX system. Built to comply with the VITA 65 OpenVPX specification, the SFM6101 delivers data plane switching, control plane switching and chassis management in a single OpenVPX slot. The module has five 12-port Gen2 serial RapidIO crossbars in a two-level hierarchy, providing full connectivity for up to 18 OpenVPX payload modules at up to 2 GB/s per link in both directions simultaneously.
